LRCC Hosting Exhibit of DOC Inmates' Art Work

LACONIA — Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) will host an exhibit of art works by inmates at the Belknap County Department of Corrections (DOC), created under the guidance of their art instructor, Mary Ellen Boudman.

While some inmates have art experience, most do not. They receive instruction in technical skills, such as use of media and design principles, as well as the use of art as a tool for self-reflection and inner growth.

"This exhibit is a great opportunity to support the growth and change that many inmates are working towards," said Patricia Wild, chair of the LRCC Art Department. "Art-making can be one step among many others on the road to a different life. It is important for us to recognize and encourage all artists, whether novices or masters, wherever they are."

The exhibit runs through October 11 in the Center for Arts and Technology foyer.
